There’s something sketchy about Old Moses. The records indicate he may have had as many as 3 wives – possibly at the same time – and as many as 12 children. There are numerous and conflicting records. The information below seems to be agreed upon by most:

  • Before Nov. 4, 1722: arrived in the US
  • Nov 4, 1722: he joined the Dutch Reformed Church of Nesaminy, Pa.
  • Occupation:¬†school master
  • His Last Will and Testament was written Mar 12, 1735 and probated Mar 16, 1735 in Newcastle Co., De.
  • MacGillebhain is White in Gaelic.

    Glad to see I am not the only one trying to figure out conflicting records. I am a descendent of Moses White through his son Joseph White(DE?), then David(NC), then William(NC),then John Austin(GAorAL), then Green Berry(LA), then Joseph John(LA), and finally my grandmother Iva Lou White(LA). Just wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work, I appreciate it!

    Not a problem! We have a certain fondness for ol’ Moses. He seems to have been a bit of a rebel :-)
